Default Got my Allen!

Just received my Allen Kraken fly reel, my prize for winning the July caption competition. WOW!! What a nice reel! I can't believe they give these things away every month just as a caption prize.

I've already bought a line for it (had a $50 Orvis coupon which I applied to a Hydros Redfish line). Today I'll swing by the fly shop to pick up 200 yds of backing and get the reel spooled up.

Due to family and work obligations, it'll probably be a couple of weeks before I can get over to the Gulf to try it out. I'm excited to put this thing to work.

Thanks very very much to the great folks at Allen!

(Now I just have to find a fly rod give-away.... )

Congrats on the new reel! I agree Justin has been very generous to sponsor the Caption Contests.

If you can do photos, post a pic of your new setup.
